not to the united states policy or obviously the administration or the american people. it is in response to a video. a film that we have judged to be reprehensible and disgusting. >> mike: sure, that is all about a video. so, how has this administration handled the crisis? my first guest is on the house intelligence committee. please welcome michelle bachmann. [applause] good to see you and thank you for coming. >> thank you. good to be here with you. [applause] >> mike: congresswoman, the white house is blaming all of this on a movie trailer for a movie that no one has seen and trying to say that all of this violence was stird up because people saw a film. your thoughts, and what we are dealing with is a film? >> it is the excuse but we know what is happening since 2005. the pen muslim countries in the world had a plan for 10 years and want to force all of the rest of the world to be in compliance with their religious law. it is called sharia law and want nonmuslims to follow their laws and what i want people to know. we are not the problem. the problem are the islamics that are demanding we follo
in jerusalem for us tonight, and rick the prime minister saying he will not wait for the united states to use force against iran and may not wait for the presidential election either. >> right, harris, the prime minister says he's not guided by the american political calendar, but by the the iranian nuclear calendar and he says israel has the right to defend itself against any threat and he says tehran is racing to build an atom bomb and that the u.s. needs to act with more urgency because time is running out and compares iran to the militants attacking u.s. embassies across the middle east, north africa and that iran puts it ahead of survival and suicide bombers, quote, all offer the place and says it will be a grave mistake not to stop that before it's too late. >> and you have the nuclear weapons, and you have countries that have access to nuclear weapons, and always made a careful calculation and cost and benefit, but iran is guided by a leadership that-- with an unbelievable fanaticism. the same fanaticism you see storm the embassy today. >> netanyahu insisting on a deadline for iran or
that work? >> well, youtube's operating under united states law, and there are very few situations where they areequired to take down content. we don't have hate speech laws. the only kind of hate speech that is illegal in the united states is when it insights imminent lawlessness, and i think google was correct that the video in question did not meet that standard, so they made a decision globally to leave that content up. that's the right decision. it's very, very difficult. we have -- youtube gets 72 hours of video uploaded a minute. we have thousands of tweets coming in a second. we can't expect these companies to be screening on the front end, and our law doesn't require them to do so. in fact, it protects them from liability. >> i know it doesn't require them and you sate's the right thing to leave it up but it did insight violence and the deaths of four americans. >> well, i don't know that we know it incited violence. we know that those videos were used at least pretexturally. it's a decision that every company has to make for themselves. that's how we've made our laws in the uni
